Gap Year Information
A gap year is a period of time when students take a break from formal education to travel, volunteer, study, intern, or work. Gap Years are a good fit for students who are looking for some life experience before returning to formal education. A gap year experience can last for several weeks, a semester, or up to a year or more. Some students choose to take a Gap Year after graduating high school but before entering college.
